Sept. 15th- 16th, North Marriott Hotel– Small Press Expo!

Covering new territory this year, I am trying out a independent publishers book & comic arts expo, to see how well it treats Zorphbert and Fred and my kids book series. It’s one of the best in the US, along with APE in California. Basically, it’s Artist Alley at a comic con, without the celebs, the big publishers like Marvel or DC stealing all the attention. If you’re interested in checking out NEW comics, graphic novels, and collections… because there are wonderful diamonds on the rough as we al know… this is the event to attend! And you cannot beat the cheap ticket prices!

I’ll be splitting a table with good friends Chris Flick of Capes and Babes, as well as Krishna Sadasivam of PC Weenies, so we’ll have a TON of webcomic goodness to sell! Aliens! Technology! Crazy Werewolves! I think it’s good combo, don’t you? We’re even discussing a cool deal for avid webcomic readers who want to buy 1 book each from us! While I’ll have mostly my books, I’ll bring a couple figurines and some trinkets like buttons, pendants, and magnets too.

FANART! By George Ward!

What a neat mash-up of Z&F and Sam & Max! I never really thought about it, but Zorphbert & Fred are indeed like Private Investigators on a different planet, so this is a pretty clever idea. Thanks to George Ward of the fantasy comic Dungeon Legacy. Fred looks awful fancy in that hat!

A Quick Thank You…

I’ll have a better write-up next week, but I wanted to put out a quick THANK YOU to all who came out for the Baltimore Comic Con this past weekend! It was even busier and better than last year, and I had a great time! The Team Cul de Sac Panel went well, and it was an honor to meet other team members! The after-party at Pratte Ale House was, as always, a wonderful way to network and meet new creators… and drink some tasty beer! We even did a Jam-Piece, which I’ll be sharing next week.

While I can’t say I out-performed myself last year financially, this is always a solid show and worth the money and effort to get down to Baltimore. Thanks to everyone who helped support Z&F, and to any new readers here online, WELCOME! Feel free to comment, ask questions, and find me on TWITTER, or FACEBOOK, or GOOGLE+
